The best fighting game on the x-box so far!!!,

This review is from: Ultimate Fighting Championship: Tapout (Video Game)
UFC Tapout is the most impressive fighting game I have seen to date. With over 25 real UFC fighetrs, who all have different skills, abilities, moves, and strategies it makes the one player modes extremely fun to play. Whats best about the game is the ability to simply pick it up and play. It uses only four main buttons that when pressed sepertaely each do a different punch or kick, or when variations (e.g two at a time) are pressed you can grapple your opponent to the ground, do a devastating submission or escape from tapping out. Matches may not last long at first, but once you have learned the basics you can have some serious fun.
The graphics in the game are tremendous. The entrances are flawless with such detail that it looks like real life, and the crowd are the best I've ever seen. The in game graphics are also brilliant with the characters looking ultra realistic and the character movement is so real it's scary.
There are also quite a few different modes to play on. An arcade mode when one player simply has to defeat as many opponents as he can in a row. The UFC mode, which is an elimination tournament where you have up to three fights, but need to save energy or you'll find your in the final with a no change in hell. A tournament mode which allows one or two players to create their own UFC tournament, or an exibition mode which is simply single matches for one or two players. There is also a create-a-fighter mode, which although isn't very detailed, and doesn't allow as much creativity as perhaps are available on such games like WWF Smackdown, it's still a nice addition to the game.
UFC Tapout has all of the characteristics of a brilliant game, and yes it even has blood. It is a simple game where two men enter a octagon shaped cage with no rules and the only way a match can be won is through knockout or submission. Playing the game on your own is great fun but playing it with friends is even better. Whether your a fan of WWF style wrestling games or DOA 3 style beat em'ups you will love this game and would be crazy not to buy it.
